Sorry, that was the only good pic I was able to capture. Didn't bother to bring my camera along and follow the rest of the parade in street level. I should have though

A lot of these places are familiar to me. I'm looking forward to seeing places that I never saw in person.
I will update this thread in the future with places/attractions around the city. I am thinking of doing La Jolla later in the summer. Possibly Oceanside as well.

Oh wow, I don't think any superlatives can properly describe this fantastic city, I'm wholly impressed.

Thanks everyone
Construction of the new city library began a few months ago and the building progress has been quite impressive. I am mentioning this because I pass by the site everyday when I get to work. It's just one block from my workplace.
Here's a render of the project. It has been on display for months over at the old library building.

I spent the afternoon in beautiful La Jolla. To get there I took the 30 Bus on 1st & Ash. A ride that lasted about 35 minutes or so, with stops in Old Town and PB. La Jolla is the wealthiest town in the whole of the United States. Cost of living in this upscale beach community is more than twice as high as Downtown San Diego. In fact, it's even more expensive than wealthy Coronado. It cost me a ridiculous $3.50 for a bottle of Snapple which in Downtown I'd pay no more than $1.70. Anyway, the weather today was splendid and I took a few photos around town. I am uploading them on Flickr as we speak and will publish them whenever I have time. Stay tuned...

La Jolla

La Jolla in Spanish means "The Jewel". It is the Jewel of America's finest city, San Diego. La Jolla is located 15 minutes from downtown San Diego. It has wonderful beaches, cultural activities and fine restaurants. La Jolla is an exquisite combination of a southern European resort atmosphere and Southern California fun. While La Jolla is known to be one of the most affluent communities in the United States, it has a down to earth feel due to the beautiful natural scenery and the helpfulness of its residents. Moreover, in addition to fine restaurants, beautiful beaches, hotels and art galleries, La Jolla is home to renowned institutions, such as the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Stephen Birch Aquarium & Museum. This is in addition to the University of California, San Diego. Furthermore, La Jolla is home to many Bio-Tech and software companies. In short, La Jolla is a great place to live in, visit, or do business.

One thing I wanted to add about La Jolla. Like all beach communities in San Diego it expands well beyond the coast and stretches extensively inland. It's much larger than what it may appear in the photos. Basically a whole city in itself.
